A hub for Northern Leavers
What is Northern Brexit?
Northern Brexit supports Brexiteers across the north of England. It's a hub of information, creating links across Leave groups, sharing essential articles, activities and events. It shares ideas, helps groups be more effective fighters for democracy.
Northern Brexit is not party specific. Labour, Tory, Liberal, Communists, Ukip. The biggest divide is no longer 'Left' and 'Right' but a decisive battle to fight for Democracy, Free Speech and a change to the old two party ways.
Brexit has exposed the bankruptcy of the established party system. It signals the end of top-down managerial politics. We need to renew democratic practice for 21st century. We need to stand up, demand change; old political parties cannot deliver this. It's up to us. Northern Brexit is here to help
We recently organised the #March4Democracy #Peterloo #Brexit event 11 May 2019 which attracted 270 people to commemorate the struggle of 60,000 Peterloo protesters in Manchester 1819. They assembled in their Sunday best to hear Henry Hunt speak in favour of the demand for adult males to be given the vote. 15 were killed by sabre wielding militias, over 600 were injured. The demand of ordinary people to have their voices heard and play their part in national life continues 200 years after that event.
